The nor’easter storm that rapped the eastern seaboard Friday into Saturday left a path of carnage in Maryland — toppling trees, trains and power lines — and leaving much of the region without power. Some folks are still without electricity as the work week begins anew.
Here are some of the notable storylines that came out following the storm.
Many roads were closed Friday into Saturday for downed trees and power lines.
But travelers looking to go through Maryland to get to D.C. or points north found a major road block at the Susquehanna River, where two key bridges — carrying U.S. 40 and Interstate 95 — were shut down due to dangerous cross-winds.
The small communities on either side of the river were inundated with travelers looking to turn around, find lodging, or refuel.
As a result, many local travelers were unable to get home for hours.
From the teachers and staff at a school who stayed until nearly 8 p.m. to ensure every child got home safely to the folks who took in strangers, there were plenty of storylines of folks doing good deeds for others in the face of adversity.
